Local partner organisations are a growing component of implementing humanitarian programmes. This Briefing Paper looks at the issues of security risk management which can arise when international agencies work with local partners.
The objectives of this paper are twofold:
The paper sets out three different models of partnerships between INGOs and local organisations, discussing how these models affect the INGO/local organization relationship and ways of working. Responsibilities – both legal and ethical – which arise as a consequence of a partnership between an INGO and a local organization are then considered. The paper goes on to examine existing tools and approaches to partner support, before discussing the various challenges and questions which remain when considering support to partner organisations on security management. Practical tools that can be adapted are shared in the annexes.
The paper notes four key areas for support to local partners in current practice:
